Five conuniLtees of five members

days, going in squads, to induce every
man and woman In that section to be

tirowth Considered Kemarkable.
The remarkable growth of the Rose
City Park section of Portland since it
was first placed on the market seven
years ago is attrloutable to several
causes, but back of it all has been the
Rose City Park Improvement- League,
an organization of progressive "first
settlers" who put their shoulders to the
wheel and for four years held semi
monthly meetings without a break
camping In the corridors of the City
Hall and on the trail of the members
of the City Council until they obtained
electric lights, gas mains, sewer
trunks and laterals, the widening of the
Sandy boulevard to 80 feet, paving
everywhere, and all the conveniences
enjoyed by any other portion of the
city. They also obtained the first fire
proof schoolhouse erected by the city.
Having secured practically all that
was to be obtained from the city In the
way of public improvements, the league
retired from the field three years ago
and was merged into the Rose City
Park Club, which at once purchased a
fine location and erected a large and
beautiful clubhouse at the intersection
of the Sandy boulevard and Fifty
fourth street, where neighborhood en
tertainments of a social nature are held
almost every evening of the week.
In addition to the commodious club
room proper, with its old-fashioned
fireplace at one end, and the auditorium
upstairs, used for dancing and other
forms of entertainments, a splendid
bowling alley was provided last year
and recently a billiard room, 20x40 feet,
was finished. It is now one of the
most complete clubhouses in the city
and has become the social center of not
only Rose City Park, but of Elmhurst.

The first prise in the contest is $125

Another first-hand story of the Z

been received in Portland by Roy

who recently returned from Europe.
Dr. Stoddard was in England during
one of the recent raids. He had been
serving in the orthopedic hospital base
for the British army at Liverpool.
One of the interesting details is Dr.
Stoddard's description of the wireleas
communication between the airships
and the land forces. He says the air
craft carry wireless antenna hanging
down, which serve in communicating
with the wireless-carrying automo
biles on land or ships on the water. The
wireless from the Zeppelin can send
messages, but is unable to receive them.
Flashes, however, from the land or
water forces are used for signals to

marvelous ways. The readjustment of
bones, muscles and nerves has devel

man, he declares.
"Miracles have been worked, almost,
it seems." writes Dr. Stoddard. "Espe

Dr. Stoddard briefly described how
Pegaud. the famous French aviator,
who single handed captured several
German Zeppelins, eventually met
death. He said that - Pegaud met his
fate when the Germane constructed a
Zeppelin, in the lower part of which
rode a sharpshooter, protected by ar
mored plate. When Pegaud flew under
the Zeppelin and began his attack the
Zeppelin sharpshooter picked him off
as the Zeppelin soared into the clouds
of smoke made from its own engines.
These smoke clouds for a time were be
lieved by the British to be natural
clouds, but Dr. Stoddard explains that
the Germans have discovered a chemi
cal which creates great volumes of
smoke, sufficient to conceal the Zep
pelin when danger ti ears.

The unprecedented success of the
Second Annual .Manufacturers' and

possible by your splendid co-operation.
You have realized how vitally im

I wish that it were possible to grasp
each one of you by the hand and to per

my heart for this splendid co-operation.
But this is physically impossible,
because thousands have helped, and
without your help the efforts of the
men who have devoted weeks of hard
work would have been without avail.
Accept this message as my personal
thanks to you. If you have not yet
seen the exhibits, be sure to do so. It
is your show, given for and by the
people of this great empire of the Pa

bringing the producers and consumers
closer together, to arrive at a better

more comprehensive realization.

BY ADDISON BENNETT.
DON'T call it the Land Show what
ever you do, for there is not a
bit of land on display. I was
asked if I had been out to the Land
Show and I answered no; then I went
up Washington to Tenth and. followed
the strings of electric lights out to the
Armory, where the products of the land
and the products of the factories Tie
with each other in maKlng a show that
is certainly worth while. It costs two
bits to see it, but when you get all
through you will feel like paying
another two bits when you come out,
for they show 'is certainly worth that
One of the first things that attracted
my attention was a bar. presided over
by a real bartender. I approached with
caution and, leaning my arms on the
mahogany, I ran my eye over the list
of drinks on sale. I finally decided I
would take a mint julep. As the bar
tender was formulating It I glanced at
his diamond, which 'is of about 13
candlepower. Then I thought of X916
and wondered what the bartenders
would be doing; so I asked him. He
replied, "That is not the question that
should Interest you; what the "ell are
you going to do?" That meant me. As
I sipped the julep (made of fruit juices
and mints) I got to thinking of that
burning question of 1916 and soon de
cided that if bars like that were
allowed to run I could worry along
as well as the bartender.
County Exhibits Vie.
Then I wandered around to look over
the county exhibits. There were dis
plays made by Klamath, Crook, Lincoln,
Washington, Clackamas, Umatilla, Mor
row, Malheur. Clatsop, Polk, Clark
(Washington), union, Wallowa ana
Linn. At least I saw that many, al
though the Crook County stun was just
being put In place. After looking them
over I thougnt I wouia sort ui juuBc
them for the various prizes, i nnaiiy
gave it up. thanking a kind providence
for not being an official judge.
Anyhow I found the Morrow County
nnonie have au exhibit well worth
while and the gentleman In charge, W.
W. Smead, knows how to interest peo
ple in the exhibtts, as he knew how to
make the display attractive. Then I
took a second and a third look at the
Union County booth, and It is some dis
play, for sure. They raise about every
thing over in Union County, particular
ly in the Grande Ronde Valley, and
they have as fine samples of all sorts
of farm products as you will find any
where. "Wallowa, from the northeastern
corner of the state, has a fine exhibit
also and very attractively displayed.
As to Polk, Linn. Clackamas, Wash
ington and the valley counties In gen
eral, one expects great things from
them and realizes his expectations. So.
UDon the whole. I am awfully glad
somebody has to pick a winner besides
yours truly. I have judged baby shows
and got away alive, but no judging for
me where there are zo exniDiiS ana
only one first prize.
Asylum Display Wonderful.
Again, I might go back Cjii the coun
ties altogether and give the blue ribbon
and the emoluments it carries to Dr.
R. E. Lee Steiner for the wonderful
asylum exhibit. I spent a good deal
of ttme looking over the 290 or 300
items going to make up- the display.
and as I had been all over the farm I
was greatly interetsed. particularly as
I know the most of the work was done
by those mentally deficient. I can tell
you the people of Oregon have every
reason to be proud of the asylum and
A great deal might be said in a day
or two about the Oregon Agricultural
College display, and the exhibit from
the branch experimental station in
Sherman County, near Wasco. This
is surely attractive to all and an
eye-opener to all who know the con
ditions in Sherman. But I have writ
ten so much about the great results
these stations are accomplishing that
I had -better not go deeper into the
Not a word about the exhibits of
manufactures, save the bar! Well, It
would take a week to go over the
whole show and tell what might be
told. My idea , is not to write an
article of such tenor that the reader
will think he knows enough without
going out and seeing for himself. Every
man, woman and child should go more
than once before the show closes.
Go first as a duty and you will go
several times more for the pleasure
you will derive. Oregon is an agricul
tural country pure and simple. Our
mines are all right, our timber is all
right. But Oregon must grow great
on the products of her soil if she grows
great at all. And she surely will. Go
out to the Armory and see if you don't
come away saying that you never sa.w
finer displays in your life.
There are many things though be
sides the agricultural exhibits and the
bar. For instance, I heaved three balls
into a bucket and came lspme with a
duck, a fine live duck! Aftd there are
numerous other attractions besides
ducks there, peaches, for instance!
KIDDIES RULE AT SHOW
MANY STAGGER AWAY WITH PLIN
DER AFTER DESCENT ON BOOTHS.
Attendance Heavier Than Any of Previ
ous eights 101 Bar" Contin
ues in Popularity.
' Children of the public schools had
their day at the Manufacturers' and
Land Products Show yesterday.
And they took advantage of the ad
mission price of 10 cents offered and
swarmed into the pavilion by hundreds
to enjoy the various attractions and to
gather up, as children ove to do, every
conceivable kind of souvenir from the
booths, from pamphlets on the effi
ciency of the one-man stump puller to
sample boxes of hard coal or briquets.
By 6 o'clock one could see the little
ones leaving the building, some of
them fairly staggering under the load
of plunder they had accumulated from
good-natured demonstrators and booth
The descent of the children upon the
exhibits and upon the shows in the
little theater were not all the features
of the afternoon, however.
At mid-afternoon Couch, Hawthorne
and Clinton Kelly schools gave an ex
hibition of games and drills in the main
ballroom under the direction of Pro
fessor Robert Krohn.
Superintendent Alderman presided,
and other officials of the school district
were present as guests of honor.
Professor Krohn brought McElroy's
band in from the concert hall, for this
band has played times Innumerable for
the children's drills, and the little ones
went through their evolutions to the
tune of the official Land Products
Show band, which went out again and
finished its programme after the chil
dren had been served.
Professor Krohn was assisted by
Misses Tramblay and Hawkins in put
ting the 40 boys and girls from Couch
School through a series of children's
Four classes from Clinton Kelly,
under Misses Johnson, Clou3, Howe and
Burns, gave a dumb-bell drill, followed
by three special song-game numbers.
Their rendition of the old song-play.
"Did You Ever See a Lassie?" under
the leadership of Professor Krohn, was
one or the lilts or the entire pro
gramme. About 140 children partici
pated from this school.
Misses Gray and Hamilton had SO
pupils from Hawthorne School in
drill with Indian clubs, which concluded
the programme in the ballroom.
After this the children received full
opportunity to enjoy themselves in the
land show and manufacturers pavlliou
as Deat suited them.
The crowds yesterday afternoon -were
larger than the heaviest evening
crowaa or the preceding days, the at
tendance being mostly or women and
school children. F. B. Norman was the
official bar booster for the day, but
the business kept running through the
afternoon without necessity for a great
deal of boosting on the part of this official.
